A woman died after being hit by an Amtrak train in Fairfield on Sunday, disrupting train service in that area, according to police.
The train crashed into the person on track 4 on the New Haven-bound track around 5:45 p.m., causing delays. All tracks in the area were shut down, according to Metro-North spokesman Marjorie Anders.
The investigation is ongoing, but Fairfield police tell News 12 Connecticut the woman appeared to be trying to cross the tracks to reach a platform on the other side when she was struck.
The incident is affecting all train service in the area, including 30 minute delays on the New Haven Line of Metro-North. However, Metro-North trains aren't expected to be greatly impacted because not as many trains come through on Sundays.
No further information was immediately available.
